KIRKUS REVIEW

Irish folk tale of a changeling hen, belonging to a little old Irish woman, and of the attempt she and two children made to free the little hen from the spell that held her in thrall. Very Irish, and thereby, perhaps, somewhat limited in sales appeal to those who like the Casserley books, etc. Better for public libraries than for bookshops, probably. Good story telling value.
